Lots of hands on, personalized instruction. Fabulous instructors, and the company is great at working with your schedule. Take the leap, sign up for Digital I, and get your camera off Auto mode.

Learn Photography Canada's approach is truly unique. By learning about technology and techniques as we took pictures I was able to see the results, get feedback from the instructors and immediately become a better photographer. The experience was all around great; from the locations we went to, to the quality of the instructors (they know pretty much every camera model out there and how to get the most out of it). Great value for my time and the money spent on the course!

Fantastic Course! The digital l course was in Canmore with stunning scenery and tons of areas to take amazing photos. The instructor was very knowledgable, personable and took the time to walk you through all of the instructions. I loved the course so much I signed up for digital ll and lightroom. I would highly recommend this course to others that are just starting out or would like a refresher. Thanks Jana and team.

I have taken a few classes from Learn Photography Alberta and have loved all of them! They are great about tailoring classes to what people want or need to get out of them. There is plenty of time to practice skills and the classes are small enough that you can get individual attention and personal help. Definitely recommend any of the classes they teach!
